I think everyone heard about Whitney Houston’s dead this morning. At all, she was born in 1963, and was an US-american soul, pop and gospel singer. A few years ago, she started using drugs(I really can’t understand why doing this!!!) and got many personal struggles. Here’s maybe her most famous song “I will always love you“:
So RIP. Whitney Houston!

Frank Paulin –Born in Pittsburgh, Paulin (1926- ) was raised in New York and Chicago.
His photojournalistic talents developed during World War II when he joined the Army and spent two years in the Signal Corps in Europe.
After the war, Paulin enrolled at the Institute of Design in Chicago, where Harry Callahan and Laszlo Maholy-Nagy were members of the faculty.
After an education that would make any photographer envious, Paulin went on to be a successful exhibition photographer, becoming the first single artist to hold an exhibit at Limelightóthe only gallery for art photography in New York at the time.
Just days after Humpty Dumpty was released from the hospital, he was seen climbing walls again. After his last reported fall, Humpty underwent 4 reconstructive surgeries. When questioned about climbing walls again so soon, Humpty stated after 3 months in the hospital, he was ready to drink, relax and sit on some walls.
Where I come from
Women are down to earth
Men are blue-collar workers
The value of life
Is not measured in gold
Every life is priceless
And worth to behold
Every child worthy
Of home, health and happiness
Every person deserving
Love and acceptance
This is the way
Where I come from
The only ones unwelcome
Are those who cause harm
Those with hearts
Grown hard with time
Filled with hate
Wrath and crime
Just pass on by
If this is you
You will not be accepted
You will be one of the few

It’s being reported that Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub and that prescription pills were also found. Allegedly, at this point the theory remains that she took a Xanax and either overdosed or drowned. She was supposed to attend Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.
Her mother, Cissy Houston and her aunt, singer Dionne Warwick talked to her just 25 minutes before she was pronounced dead. They said they didn’t suspect anything, as they all chatted about Davis’ party and other things.
Celebrities and drug use
I can’t help but wonder who the next celebrity will be to lose their life after a battle with drugs. And yes, I swear everyone’s first thought is Lindsay Lohan. After Amy Winehouse and now Whitney Houston, it will be astonishing if Lindsay Lohan doesn’t try to seriously clean up her act. Sadly, I think she’s too far gone and surrounded by terrible people (her…

Spending time in a bottle
Such a good idea it seemed
A clever and fun vacation
Human Time Machine
Spending time in a bottle
Such a romantic thought
Turned into a nightmare
For our lives we fought
Making poor decisions
Though heart in right place
Equally poor minds
Got us stuck in this place
My man and I
In our own floating paradise
Enough supplies for months
A romantic place designed for us
Free of worries and strain
No reason to complain
Had hoped for a dream vacation
Where we could escape
Go to a happy place
But then, it had to happen
Nobody to blame
I lost the cork to our bottle!
I popped it out into the sea!
I thought it was tied on
Oh God, I am such a moron!
It was hot in here!
I just wanted to cool off
We were never told…

Online retailers started listing a physical single for “Give Me” wilth a release date of February 24.
Yesterday we anticipated that the release is likely to be slightly pushed back.
The 2-track single will include the “Party Rock Remix” feat. LMFAO as its b-side.
Polydor will not release “Give Me All Your Luvin'” as a physical single in France.
Interscope doesn’t have a plan to release a Maxi, although they have a set of remixes ready to be serviced to clubs.
MADONNA turned to the talents of Irish milliner Philip Treacy for her flamboyant Super Bowl look.
The pop diva, who has long been a fan of the award-winning designer, wore an intricate gold headpiece that was custom made to complete her gladiator look.
The piece was encrusted with diamonds and based on designs by Riccardo Tisci.
It is rumoured to have taken several days to assemble, and has received praise worldwide for its meticulous design.
Madonna’s association with Philip Treacy goes back further than a decade. In 2001, she caused outrage when she was pictured sporting a €1,200 hat he had made from the pelts of five foxes.

Though it may not look like it (mainly due to the 90 second exposure used), the snow was coming down like crazy on the green I used to play for hours on as a kid, just down the road from my parent’s house in Norfolk. My camera was soaking (good thing it’s weatherproof!) and – courtesy of a brutal windchill – my hands felt like they were going to drop off, in spite of the fact that I was only out shooting for about 10 minutes!
The snow was truly stunning in this newly fallen, untouched state.
President Obama “is focused like a laser on putting people back to work,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) assured us last fall – echoing repeated statements by President Obama and Administration officials who “can’t wait” for Congress or others to take action and create jobs.
The jobs thing didn’t last long, however. The President soon vetoed TransCanada’s application for permits to build the Keystone XL pipeline. Approving them “would not be in the national interest,” he declared.
It is hard for most Americans to understand how it is contrary to the national interest to create 20,000 construction and manufacturing jobs, increase US gross domestic product by an estimated $350 billion, and bring 830,000 barrels of oil per day via pipeline from friend and neighbor Canada to Texas refineries. It’s hard for us to grasp how pipelining Canadian oil is worse than importing oil in much riskier…

Terry Richardson is shooting the 2010 Pirelli calendar on location at the beautiful UXUA Casa Hotel in Trancoso Brazil, and Vanity Fair has provided us with some behind the scenes shots of what we can except from the latest Pirelli offering. NSFW images after the jump.
Also – your search terms, the pages you visited, practically every word you type on your keyboard will be stored somewhere for others to see. That’s fucked up because it will annihilate my personality, my most intimate thoughts will be made public.
In that moment I realized once again that ACTA isn’t something I would embrace.
Let’s say that I will search for some Japanese lessons online – and I will spend some time on these sites…

Iran pledged Friday to back Palestinian resistance against Israel, saying “soon the Zionist regime will be punished for its plots and aggression,” AFP reported Iran’s first vice-president Mohammad Reza Rahimi as saying.
Rahimi made the remarks to visiting Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who arrived Friday for three-day trip.
“Iran will not retreat one iota from its position on defending the rights of the Palestinian people,” AFP quoted Rahimi as saying.
“The Palestinian issue is a red line for us,” he said, vowing that Tehran would use “everything at its disposal” to support the “oppressed” Palestinians.
